By Jeff Stinger

It’s finally time to decide the best knockout artist in boxing’s welterweight division, as the monumental clash between Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford is on the horizon. Both men will not only be vying to be called the Undisputed Welterweight champion but also put their respective perfect records on the line this Saturday live from the heart of Las Vegas.

Nitrobetting isn’t holding back any punches regarding previews for the biggest boxing and mixed martial arts events on the calendar. Let’s break down the upcoming massive title fight between Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford for the unified welterweight title.

Spence Jr. vs. Crawford Fight Info

Why Bet on Errol Spence Jr.?

As a lifelong welterweight, few can compare to the legacy Errol Spence Jr. is building for himself in the weight class. The 33-year-old southpaw out of Long Island has not lost a single bout since his professional debut in 2012, winning all 28 of his career boxing matches.

After beating Kell Brook for the IBF welterweight title in 2017, Spence stayed hot and had three successful defenses before defeating Shawn Porter for the WBC crown. Another stellar reason for both titles against Danny Garcia paved the way for a matchup against WBA super welterweight champion Yordenis Ugas, which “The Truth” prevailed with a 10th-round TKO of Ugas.

Only Crawford’s WBO belt stands in the way of Spence for him to cement his spot as a living boxing legend and become the first undisputed welterweight champ since 2006. With terrific endurance, sound fundamentals, and a powerful arsenal (22 career knockout victories), Spence’s current odds do not do justice to his immense body of work.

Why Bet on Terence Crawford?

In a match about half a decade in the making, 35-year-old Terence Crawford will finally get to prove that he, not Spence, is the real pound-for-pound champ. After all, the Omaha native’s journey to the sport’s elite ranks has been longer and more testing than his opponent’s.

Crawford began his professional boxing career as a lightweight and captured his first major title in 2014 by winning the WBO lightweight belt. Just a year after, “Bud” would win the vacant light welterweight title and go on an impressive two-year run in the division, culminating with him becoming the undisputed light welterweight champion in 2017. Since conquering that mountain, he has won the WBO welterweight crown in his first crack and has had six more successful title defenses of that belt.

In contrasting fighting styles compared to Spence, Crawford’s time in the lower weight classes has developed him into a more unorthodox striker. The natural southpaw can operate in both stances to befuddle his opposition. Nobody has been able to crack the code to beating Crawford, whose 39-fight unbeaten run puts him in a position as a slight favorite to dethrone his more decorated opponent this weekend and become a two-time undisputed champion in two different weight classes.

Errol Spence Jr. vs. Terence Crawford Expert Betting Prediction

It gets no closer than a showdown between two top-flight boxers with no blemish on their careers. Although Crawford has had more experience in the ring and more successful title bout defenses, being a natural heavyweight with an all-around package should give the edge to Spence. Despite being the slight underdog odds-wise, we’re ultimately siding with Spence to take this blockbuster matchup with a knockout win late in the double-digit rounds.
